Recently volunteers have restored a historic cemetery in St. Charles County that holds the grave of a Revolutionary War veteran.
The grave of John Pitman is above; as is typical of Protestant settlers, the dead were buried in family cemeteries in early Missouri.
Here’s a link to a great article about how the subdivision developer agreed to help restore the cemetery along with descendants of the Pitmans. Below is a truly massive gravestone that hasn’t been lifted out of the ground yet.
A fence was constructed by the developer around the cemetery.
By the way, what is up with this type of roof line? I’m seeing it more and more lately.
